The study presents the estimated cost to the various segments of the asbestos industry of the proposed TSCA section 8(a) rule reporting commercial and industrial use of asbestos. The economic impacts of the proposed rule are examined for the primary processing segment of the industry. Gross profits of firms by size are examined and the percent impact of the proposed rule determined. For primary processors in the size range of 11 to 30 employees, the economic impact is seen to be roughly 0.1% of gross profits. Impacts are greater for firms of less than 10 employees but these are not required to report under the proposed rule.
